CANUCKS ARMY GDT# 80 – CANUCKS @ COYOTES

The beaten and battered Canucks fly to Arizona to take on the equally terrible Coyotes. This one has a fair amount riding on it as a win by either team puts the loser in 29th place overall and a better chance at the draft lottery. It’s not all hum and glum because the season is…
